2017-9 Storm at Sea Miniature Quilt

 

 

This little quilt was made last spring to enter in the fall fair in the miniature quilt category.  It was fun to do, but I have decided that the next one I do will be paper pieced.  So much easier to achieve accuracy with paper piecing!  I quilted this on my domestic machine, stitch in the ditch technique with a walking foot, using Navy  Bottom Line in both the bobbin and on top.  Because the thread is so fine, it sinks right into the ditch, disappearing while giving surface texture.    Finished size is 10 inches by 14 inches.

In my imagination, a future grandchild will value this as a doll quilt.  I sure hope Ipads do not replace dolls!
